    I am not sure what the camel part is about, but the poem itself made me think of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King which was written with the poem Childe Roland To The Dark Tower Came by Robert Browning.

  3. thanks for the comment, adam. :)

    i love that series. actually, i've pretty much read almost every book by stephen king. good stuff, and he writes well.

  4. This is perfect Kouji!
    The picture of the horse in the valley is in Gloucestershire (UK), I took it a couple of weeks ago, it was a glorious autumn weekend in the country.
    Did you sit bar exams? Hope all went well.

  5. thanks for the comment, wordcrafter. :)

    indeed. that horse shot was glorious. :O

    yup. the bar exams are over. quite hard unfortunately.

  6. Sounds like a long life to me!:)

  7. thanks for the comment, borut. :)

    indeed. hopefully not a life cut short.

  8. probably a stupid question, but what does haiku mean?

  9. thanks for the comment, hugo santos. :)

    hmmm... haiku are short poems of japanese origin. some persons use a 3 line structure, with 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third. other persons use even fewer syllables, aiming for a one breath poem.

    they tend to be about nature, though some persons apply the structure to other topics.

    the idea here is to convey much, with few words, and maybe have some kick to the overall end product (a twist at the end, for example).

    i love them because they force me to focus, and imagine, and then choose words more carefully. :)

    also, here's the link to wikipedia's haiku article:

  12. The sand made me think about, not the Camel, but more in the of Frank Herbert and his books about Dune - I might read it again for I dont know which time, they are good the books - I can recommend them.

  13. thanks for the comment, ashi. :)

    indeed. i love that series, and i've gone through it repeatedly.

    walk without rhythm...

  14. hard monotonous life..or hardships of life?

    it makes me think..think and think!


  15. thanks for the comment, devika. :)

    a hard life. but one surrounded by beauty. dry beauty.

  16. Oh Yes....sand dunes are so beautiful....
